I have for immediate sale the following items. More spare gear that I've had for a while that I would like to move to held fund a purchase of original photographs. Payment via PayPal is strongly preferred but of course I will accept checks or money orders. A small fee will be added to the total if you are using PayPal. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in anything. First come, first served. Photos will be up shortly.
1.) Federal Issue Drawers, Alvin Rose contract. Made by myself using light weight canton flannel. Completely hand-sewn with natural thread as per the original. Marked with a variant Rose stamp and size bars on the waistband. Will fit a size 38" waist, legs are cut a little narrower than pattern for a closer fit. Brand new, never worn except to try on over boxer shorts. Asking $95 shipped.
2.) Federal Issue Haversack. Made by The Haversack Depot back in the late 90's. I think this is their "QMD pattern" haversack. Re-painted a few years ago, nice and shiny. Interior is dirty but has been cleaned. Asking $50 shipped.
3.) Federal NY Depot Canteen, Leather-Covered. I believe this is an old Orchard Hill canteen that was recovered with tanned/oiled leather by Dell's Leatherworks. Comes with quality leather strap. I purchased it used and carried it only a few times. Asking $80 shipped.
4.) Federal "McDowell" Forage Cap. Made by Mike Stiles of Superior Cap Company. Mike's work is among the best out there and from what I understand he has stopped producing his excellent headgear. High quality dark blue wool broadcloth body with a black silk lining, embossed red leather sweatband and properly glazed visor and chinstrap. Original Federal staff officer buttons and chinstrap buckle. Size 7 1/2. Asking $90 shipped.
5.) Camp Shoes. Made by Robert Land. Practically brand-new, I purchased these early last year and found them too narrow and a little short. Would fit a size 10 foot better than mine. Asking $95 shipped.
6.) CS Trousers Kit. FHW dark blue on natural wool/cotton jean, cotton sheeting facings/pocketing. I have already started on the pockets and have some other parts pressed, pinned, or sewed. Comes with turned wood buttons. NO INSTRUCTIONS. Size 37" waist. Asking $70 shipped.
7.) Civilian Trousers Kit. Vintage orange/natural/light green subdued plaid wool kersey, cotton sheeting and brown polished cotton facings. No pocket bags for some reason. Comes with original stippled brass buttons for the waistband and bone buttons for the fly. NO INSTRUCTIONS. Size 37" waist. Asking $70 shipped.
8.) CS Frock Coat Kit. FHW royal blue on natural wool/cotton jean, stout osnaburg lining. Cotton batting for the chest padding, also comes with an optional pointed cuff facing like the kind on Federal frock coats. I have no recollection of cutting this but it had a tag saying "Crescent Regt." so I guess I wanted to make a super sweet blue Crescent Regiment frock for myself a long time ago. Can be used for other impressions too, made into a tail coat with skirt alterations, or even serve as an overcoat for a smaller person. Should be interesting when finished to say the least! NO INSTRUCTIONS. Size 40" chest. Asking $90 shipped.
9.) Steubenville (Ohio) Fatigue Blouse. Made by Dan Wambaugh using quality dark blue wool flannel. Unlined in the body but lined in the sleeves with muslin as per the original. Machine-sewing and hand-sewing done in logwood dyed thread! All interior body seams are hand-felled. Rounded exterior pocket. EDIT: Now with buttons! Size 42" chest. A beautiful jacket that was only worn twice. Asking $200 shipped.
10.) 1842 Springfield Rifled Musket. Made by Armi Sport. De-farbed barrel with modern markings removed and period markings in place. Comes with bayonet marked "US" on lower blade. Used by myself six or seven times; honest wear and in great shape with no nicks, gouges, chips, etc. from the stock. Asking $750 shipped for both the rifled musket and bayonet.
